"Paths are made by walking"
~ Franz Kafka
Walk & Talk
No matter what the weather, there's nothing I love more than pulling on my walking boots, coaxing the dog off of the sofa, wrapping up and wandering through the wilderness, with no particular place to be.
The great outdoors has always been a magical and calming place for me. I have spent countless hours stomping through fields after heartbreaks, sitting under trees with just a book and dog for company, and gazing out at rolling waves whilst lost in my own thoughts.
Walk and Talk merges traditional Therapy and Coaching with the great outdoors and has been found to significantly reduce symptoms of depression, anxiety, burnout and stress, as well as enhance creativity and overall mental and physical wellbeing. Being in nature encourages the possibility of a new narrative and outlook on the struggles you're facing.
So if you like the sound of reaping all the typical benefits of Therapy and Coaching, whilst being in the great outdoors, please get in touch today.
If however you prefer the idea of being in the comfort of your own home please click here for further information on how to book an online session.
With You Every Step of the Way
How Does It Work?
Walk and Talk is available within the Mendips and surrounding Somerset areas (including availability to clients from Bath and Bristol who would like to travel to the rolling Mendips for a stroll). Clients need to have completed an initial three online sessions, including an assessment at the first session, for us to get to know each other a bit better.
How long does each session last?
The duration of your Walk and Talk session will be agreed prior to meeting but the minimum is an hour (as with online sessions) although we don't have to walk for all of this - you may want to meet in a park or on a shorter route where we can sit and watch the world go by with some walking interspersed!
Do I have to be fit?
As we will have a choice of routes to choose from you should hopefully have an option to suit your level of fitness. If however you are in any doubt please contact your doctor before commencing our Walk and Talk session.
What about the British weather?
We will aim to meet regardless of the weather unless it poses a risk (such as predicted flooding, snow storm or thunder and lightning).
If (by some bizarre turn of events!) it is so hot that it's uncomfortable to walk then we will gather up drinks, sunscreen, hats and whatnot, to sit underneath a lovely shaded tree for our session.
What if I see someone I know?
Although the likelihood of this happening is low, we will decide together, before our session, how we will respond to this.
